I’m quite proud of myself for finishing these books. I visited family for about a week and then got caught up in Monk, Psych, Medium, and Grimm marathons.
4th | The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
I enjoyed this book more than I did the first one. While there are a few gods and goddesses that flew over my head, I like the action. Since I have not seen the movie adaption to this book I also had nothing to compare the book to. This book just made everything much more interesting.
5th | Hanger volume 1 written and illustrated by Hirotaka Kisaragi
I wasn’t expecting this book to be yaoi. Based on the cover I thought the story would be similar to 07-Ghost but I did not realize this was the story that I wanted. In my review I said I was reminded of Psycho Pass but by only a tiny margin. Although the story does have the potential to by a bit corny I’m intrigued on how the story will unfold.
11th | City of Lies by Sam Hawke
I was not a big fan on the romance but I did love the world building; especially, the intricate details given to the poisonous plants.
12th | Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
This is a reread. I mainly picked it up because there is a companion novel, Ogre Enchanted, being released in the fall (or is it winter). I know I don’t need to read this book but I just wanted to remind myself of the world I read back in middle school.
14th | Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
While I couldn’t really connect with Aru the book is full of action and adventure despite the dire circumstances they are in. When reading I kept envisioning vivid colors and sometimes I forget that Aru is wearing Spiderman pajamas. I am severely interested in the lives of the secondary characters too, but I do not know how much of a role the will play in the quartet.
